Easter Seals’ remote camp is back, bigger and better than ever for the summer of 2021! After a successful pilot of the virtual camp program in Summer 2020, followed by year-round camp programming in the fall, winter, and spring, the Camp E-aster Seals team is excitedly preparing a new and enhanced remote program for this summer.
Starting June 28th, Easter Seals campers will be able to enjoy the return of morning Flagpole videos, weekly campfires, daily live events and special guests, ongoing activities to do from home, and unique camp-wide challenges. Summer 2021 also features the return of the Leaders-in-Training (LIT) program for participants aged 17 to 26.
Some new highlights for 2021 include the introduction of a Counsellor-in-Training (CIT) program, in which successful applicants will have the opportunity to receive mentorship from experienced camp staff and to practice their leadership skills in the remote camp environment. Furthermore, 2021 brings about the addition of a new Camp E-aster Seals digital badging program, in which campers can earn badges and recognition for skill development and active camp participation. This summer’s programming will feature new opportunities for learning and social connection, through virtual field trips, engaging guest speakers, and increased frequency of social hangouts.
Registration will open on June 14, 2021, so stay tuned for more details! If you have any questions about the remote camp program, please feel free to contact the Camp Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
